PLEASE REVOKE ROTIMI AMAECHI AND FAMILY'S VISA..
The United Nations, Heads of Government, Heads of Parliament and other members of the International Community, We write to bring to your notice, the wanton killings, maiming and brazen violation of human rights of the citizens of Nigeria, particularly the people of Rivers State which enveloped the Gubernatorial Election held on March 9, 2019 by the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, using the Nigerian Military, a litany of security personnel and thugs loyal to the All Progressive Congress (APC). It is per the above ratio, that this petition is raised to save our democracy that is on the precipice. The world would recall that the Supreme Court of Nigeria, in exercising its constitutional functions while determining the suit filed by 22 aggrieved members of the party barred the candidate of the APC from contesting the Rivers Gubernatorial election. Following this judgement by the Supreme Court, Rotimi Amaechi, the leader of the party in Rivers State and his lieutenants have unleashed the most crude form of attack on the people of Rivers State. The media is awash with pictorial and video evidence of the mayhem caused by Rotimi Amechi, in the bid to cause anarchy and destroy Nigeria’s hard earned democracy. The militarization of Rivers State during this election, have been used to perpetrate the worst form of brigandage, tryanny and chaos known to the lexicon of human existence in recent times. Homes and Polling units have been invaded and opposition members shot in cold blood. The military have been used to cart away Electoral materials in an attempt to thwart and subdue the will of the people. The death toll has risen to an astronomical level owing to the desperation of a man whose party fielded no candidate in the election, but has sworn to make the state uninhabitable for the citizens. Suffice it to say, that the Rivers State government and the entire people of Rivers State have times without number, called on the President, the Inspector General of Police and the Chief of Army Staff to bring to an end to wit; the killings and inhuman treatment to no avail. The current federal government out of desperation has further empowered Mr Rotimi Amechi to enable him kill more people. It is vital to note, that the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) working with the incumbent Federal Government suspended the election in Rivers State, after results have been announced at the various polling units, refused to collate same and announce the PDP candidate winner in an election that he had clearly won. This has further caused panic amongst the citizenry who now live in fear. It is against this backdrop, that we ask you to intervene and blacklist Rotimi Amechi who in our opinion has become a terrorist, bar his family members from traveling and withdraw their visas. The people of Rivers State should not die for choosing the path of prosperity and progress. The people must be allowed to elect a government of their choice. Anything to the contrary would be a recipe for anarchy. THANK YOU.
